Best Damn Cheesy Tater Tot Bacon Breakfast Casserole EVER!!! Freezable

Pin It Now!

OH BOY, Breakfast Casserole!

But not just any breakfast casserole, this is BY FAR, the absolute best casserole I have ever had.

  • The recipe is for TWO Casseroles... Serve one, freeze one for a convenient breakfast in a few weeks.
  • LOADED with plenty of Bacon!
  • A cheap "Tube of Sausage" upgrade.  Look for sales and stock up on these handy frozen wonders.
  • Topped with crispy crunchy layer of Tater Tots (Kids LOVE this recipe)
  • A layer of Gooey Cheesy goodness in the center
  • You can make this the night before, for an easy "pop in the oven" breakfast.
Really... What's not to love... And tastes great as well!

Easy to follow recipe below, keep scrolling down.

But I wanted to share a fantastic gift I received... A programmable Casserole Slow Cooker... 9X13 in size, so any normal casserole will fit, like this one!  I love this, can use as a warming tray, goes from oven to the warmer unit if you prefer to cook fast but then want to keep warm.  Is beautiful, will look great on any table and the locking lid makes this extra convenient for travel of you do a lot of Church Socials or big family get togethers... Love this!
